    Hi Heimo, this is a great idea thanks for sharing!

    You would be able to achieve this effect in Arkio if you applied a normal texture to this dome shape. (an UV mapped JPG or PNG image) Currently, the HDRI textures will not be exported as a default material from Blender and Arkio currently does not support importing HDRI textures so that is where information currently gets lost.

    It's also possible to UV map a half/full dome with a normal texture (JPG/PNG) to achieve a similar effect. The same strategy can be used to load other UV-mapped meshes to Arkio for eg loading photogrammetry scans of 3D surroundings or procedural textures that can be applied to the geometry as normal UV-mapped textures.

    We will also look into HDRI textures but let us know if you found a good way to get your skybox textures to Arkio!

    Did You think about it in the meantime in depht? 

    What i tried: to export it from Blender in other formates, but Blender seems not to be capable of attaching this pixels direct on whatever export format.

    My idea to it: to devide the EXR into peices and attach it to an exploded Dome-Form individually at each little face..

    I personally have to wait for You to make that real. Hope so..

    greetings from Austria.
